One of the biggest impacts will probably the increased difficulty of getting a full-time job. Companies are already working to get many of their employees below 30 hours a week to avoid the ObamaCare mandate.

This will be especially problematic for low-paying jobs, so now low-paid employees can thank ObamaCare for reduced hours to go with their low wages.
There's estimates that put the number of uninsured higher after the mandate, because some companies will drop the insurance they offer because Obamacare says it isn't good enough so they pay the penalty instead and the workers get dumped on Medicaid, but Medicaid doesn't have to cover single adults without children, and with the increased amount of workers being dumped on Medicaid, they won't cover them. So then there will be cries for more government involvement. To think this whole new entitlement was started, when you strip away people who can afford insurance making $50,000-$75,000 but don't buy it, young adults who think they're invincible and don't buy it, and people here illegally, when all that's stripped away you're looking at 10-15 million people, divide that into 50 states and it could've been taken care of alot more economically than this huge boondoggle that makes everyone elses coverage change. That leads me to believe this really wasn't about healthcare at all. It's about creating more dependents and control. Now, i understand people can disagree with me on that......but then you'd be wrong now wouldn't you? Exactly.
